First generation (1971-1976)

The first generation Custom Cruiser first appeared in 1971 based upon the C platform. It could seat up to 8 people, and it also featured an innovative electrically operated tailgate that went down into the floor of the car, while the rear window went into the roof. It was easy to distinguish from other large GM station wagons of the time, owing to its rear-wheel-well skirts that some observers thought made it look like a hearse. The first generation lasted until 1976. The General Motors C platform (commonly called C-Body) was a fullsize car automobile platform produced until 1996. ...


These first large Oldsmobile station wagons since 1963 were exceptionally heavy, often weighing more than 5,000 lb. To motivate this bulk with some semblance of power, Oldsmobile's 455 in³ (7.4 L) V8 engine was made standard.


Second generation (1977-1990)

The second generation Custom Cruiser appeared in 1977 and was now based upon the B platform. The second generation was smaller than the previous generation, and some 1,000 lb lighter, although it could still seat 8 people. The electrically operated tailgate was replaced by a conventional three-way tailgate similar in concept to that pioneered by Ford Motor Company on its station wagons in the mid-1960s. The B platform, or B-body, was General Motors full-size rear wheel drive automobile platform. ... “Ford” redirects here. ...


The new 1977 Custom Cruisers came with a standard 350 in³ (5.7 L) V8. Oldsmobile's 403 in³ (6.6 L) V8 was optional through 1979. In 1978, the trouble-prone 350 in³ diesel V8 became available; it would remain an option through 1985, after which it was dropped. 1980 saw the introduction of the 307 in³ V8, based upon the 350; it became standard. The gasoline 350 would remain as an option through 1980, but was dropped thereafter. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... This page chronicles the many automobile engines that General Motors has used in its various marques. ...


The Custom Cruiser was slightly restyled in 1980 with slightly better aerodynamic efficiency through a lower front fascia. The doors and window mechanisms were also redesigned to be lighter. On the sides, the woodgrained panels no longer followed the curves of the wheel wells, but were positioned higher on the body sides to give a straighter, sleeker look; however it should be noted that not all Custom Cruisers were equipped with woodgrained panels and many were sold without. Aside from the obligatory annual grille changes and other minor trim revisions, the 1980 restyle was the second generation Custom Cruiser's last.


Mechanically, minor changes were made between 1980 and 1990. The new E4ME electronic carburetor which used GM's CCC (Computer Command Control) system was introduced in 1980 for models sold in California. In 1981, all Custom Cruisers used the E4ME with the CCC system, although Canadian emission cars continued to use the mechnaical M4ME carburetor until 1986. Also new in 1981 was GM's new Turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with overdrive. This transmission was equipped with a lock-up torque converter and a 0.67:1 overdrive ratio. With the new transmission, the Custom Cruiser could be equipped with a numerically higher rear axle ratio for better performance, while offering improved fuel economy with the overdrive range. 1985 saw major changes to the 5.0 L (307 CID) engine's cylinder head design. Introduced were new "swirl port" heads, which improved driveability and low-end torque. These new heads also featured very small intake ports, which reduced the higher RPM power and performance significantly. Along with the new heads, roller lifters replaced the old flat lifters.


The second generation continued on until 1990, by which time it was the division's only rear-wheel drive car. Oldsmobile management began calling the Custom Cruiser the division's "Rock of Ages" in press releases. This was a tongue-in-cheek reference to both the vehicle's longevity and seemingly undying - although waning - popularity among the station wagon faithful, but there were changes afoot in the industry. The traditional, large, rear-wheel drive wagons were no longer the "must have" haulers for the American family, and this fact was not lost on Oldsmobile. Changes would have to be made to reverse the trend, and both the 1990 Oldsmobile Silhouette and the 1991 Oldsmobile Bravada would be part of those changes. Rear-wheel drive (or RWD for short) is an engine/transmission layout used in automobiles. ... The Oldsmobile Silhouette, along with its siblings the Pontiac Trans Sport and Chevrolet Lumina APV, were a trio of minivans that débuted with radical styling in fall 1989 as 1990 models. ... The Bravada was a mid-size luxury SUV from the Oldsmobile marque of General Motors. ...


Third generation (1991-1992)

The Custom Cruiser was redesigned with the rest of the GM B-bodies for 1991. Some magazines (particularly Motor Trend) and other sources believed the division would resurrect the Vista Cruiser name for the new wagon, but Olds kept the Custom Cruiser name instead. The Vista Cruiser was a station wagon built by the Oldsmobile Division of General Motors from 1964 to 1977, which was based on the Oldsmobile Cutlass/F-85 model, but had a longer full-sized car wheelbase (120-121 inches) than the intermediate sedan chassis (115-116 inches) it was...


Oldsmobile customers were less than enthusiastic about the new Custom Cruiser. Some felt that the new, woodgrain-less sides made the car less distinctive, although the revived "Vista Roof" sunroof over the second row of seats did add some flair. Unfortunately for Oldsmobile, though, the Vista Roof was also installed on the Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon, and that wagon came with woodgrained sides. The Roadmaster was an automobile built by the Buick division of General Motors. ...


Oldsmobile, unlike Buick and Chevrolet, chose not to use the updated 1991 B platform for a sedan, because they were afraid of it competing with the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight[citation needed]. Then, too, the long-serving Olds 307 was replaced by a 5.0 L Chevrolet V8 engine. This engine was equipped with throttle body fuel injection and was rated at 170 hp, compared to the old Quadrajet-equipped 307 which was rated at 140 hp in 1990. This development just added to the disappointment of many Oldsmobile fans, although the new Chevrolet engine offered a significant increase in power, performance as well as improved economy. Also new for 1991 the old Turbo-Hydramatic 200-4R was replaced by the 4L60, formerly known as the Turbo-Hydramatic 700-R4. Despite the fact that the Custom Cruiser was far less of an Oldsmobile than before, sales did improve over the 1990 model year, with some 7,663 Custom Cruisers sold for the 1991 model run. Sales slipped to just over 4,300 in 1992, however, and a beleaguered Oldsmobile pulled the plug. The 1992 model year, however, also offered a 5.7 L (350 in³) Chevrolet V8 as an option, like the Chevrolet Caprice and Buick Roadmaster wagons. This engine was also equipped with throttle body fuel injection and was rated at 180 hp, and 300 ft·lbf of torque compared to the standard 305's 170 hp and 255 ft·lbf of torque.

Why it was discontinued

Some have suggested that the introduction of the Oldsmobile Bravada SUV and the Oldsmobile Silhouette minivan led to the demise of the Custom Cruiser, despite the fact that both vehicles fell short of performing the same tasks as the big wagon. For instance, the Bravada was a much shorter and narrower vehicle, resulting in less cargo room and passenger carrying capacity (not to mention safety issues due to the high center of gravity and narrowness of the vehicle), and the minivan lacked the one-step fold flat rear seats station wagons featured for decades, and with all seats installed, the cargo area of the van is a joke compared to the wagon. Also the van carried 7 passengers, but the station wagon was good for 8 passengers with the third row seat. But it is also important to note that the Bravada and Silhouette were targeted at growing market segments which the Custom Cruiser did not fit into. While it was not a roaring success, the Bravada likely stole its share of customers from the Custom Cruiser because it offered one of the most luxurious SUV interiors of the early 1990s. It could carry five people comfortably, and, when properly equipped, could tow as well as or better than the Custom Cruiser.[citation needed] The Bravada was a mid-size luxury SUV from the Oldsmobile marque of General Motors. ...

It has been suggested that Mini MPV be merged into this article or section. ... This article or section may be confusing or unclear for some readers, and should be edited to rectify this. ...


Another small part of the Custom Cruiser's demise is attributed to the lack of an Oldsmobile engine. Oldsmobile fans were loyal to the Rocket V8, and after the 307 was killed in 1990 many of them found no reason to buy Oldsmobiles.[citation needed]


Of course, by 1992, Oldsmobile was certainly not alone in dropping its full-size wagon. Chrysler left the full-size station wagon segment to Ford and GM after the 1977 model year and began working on what would become the modern minivan. Often held responsible for the death of the full-size wagon, the 1984 Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager were introduced to rave reviews and quickly became more popular than any Chrysler station wagon had ever been.[citation needed] GM and Ford were forced to play "catch-up" to their much smaller rival. “Ford” redirects here. ...

It has been suggested that this article be split into articles entitled Dodge Caravan and Dodge Grand Caravan, accessible from a disambiguation page. ... The Plymouth Voyager and Plymouth Grand Voyager were minivans marketed by DaimlerChrysler (they were sold by the Chrysler Corporation until 1998). ...


The casualties among the big wagons began to pile up, although not immediately. GM's Pontiac division went first. The division killed off the B-body Safari in 1989, and opted not to share in the redesign of the 1991 B platform. Ford, which for years had ruled the wagon segment with its Country Squire and Mercury Colony Park, introduced its redesigned large cars, the Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis in 1991 as early 1992 models, and for the first time in most people's memory, there were no full-size wagons in the Ford lineup.

The handwriting was clearly on the wall. The market had well and truly changed by the time the Custom Cruiser slipped into oblivion, and big wagons had fallen from favor. Buick and Chevrolet would be the last holdouts, and their wagons (and big sedans) would continue, but with sales continuing to fall, the Caprice sedan and wagon, Roadmaster sedan and Roadmaster Estate Wagon were finally withdrawn from production in 1996. Despite this, 9 years later, the full size wagon saw a revival with the introduction of the Dodge Magnum. The Dodge Magnum name has been used on a number of different automobiles. ...

Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1260 words)
The second generation Custom Cruiser appeared in 1977 and was now based upon the B platform.
The Custom Cruiser was redesigned with the rest of the GM B-bodies for 1991.
For reasons which are still not clear, Oldsmobile, unlike Buick and Chevrolet, chose not to use the updated 1991 B platform for a sedan, thus passing up an opportunity to draw back customers who had been put off by the division's switch to front-wheel drive cars in the mid-1980s.
Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser: information (150 words)
Oldsmobile's capabilities are exceptional that it would even resist going to a junk shop even with just the basic and proper maintenance.
Although Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser displays such remarkable traits, it didn't stay in the industry for long, and was dropped after the last model in 1992.
The Custom Cruisers however are still serving their owners in great performance until these very days.
